The Angel’s message was clear:
No more taunting, no more war
Learn your lesson, test your strength
Pay attention to your mission of peace
Do not stare in disbelief
The anger, the hurt, the dirt will slide
Extinguish the fury that builds inside
Let your body emit the light
Do what’s good; do what’s right
The Angel’s message was very clear
The question is do they hear?

  3. This one goes with a really good rhythm and message.
    One line which, to my ear, could be improved as needing to be short and pithy:
    ‘Let your body emit the light’.

    1. Thanks, Diane. I think we have enough doom and gloom in the world, so I’m trying to keep everything I do positive! 😀

  5. Yes my friend, we can only pray that those with the power will listen.

    Right now the world is in danger and we may actually see a nuclear war – I pray we don’t!!! 😦

    God Bless!

    1. And all because some like the sound of their own voices and don’t listen to others, Prenin.
      This is one of the reasons I’ve turned off the news. I don’t want to know about it.

  6. I feel a lot of us don’t want to hear..or find it hard to hear with all the other noise that we occupy ourselves with. Loved the poem, Tom!

    1. Thanks, Shree. Yes, we are being bombarded by all sorts at present, and on top of that we have our own Inner Voices to contend with as well.
